***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi Teresio Many thanks for this compilation. You may be interested in some related work that I am planning right now. This is a methodology paper on "Relationships Mapping for Oxfam Australia", which will be followed through in practice later this year, in the context of a review of their five-year strategic plan. One of their strategic objectives is "Working Better with others", which then breaks down into sub-objectives concerned with relationships with four types of stakeholders within and outside of Australia. Already the issue of lessons to be learned from the private sector has come up, and your references to do with public sector experiences are also very relevant. regards, rick davies www.mande.co.uk On 6/12/06, Teresio Poggio <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > > Dear Socnet members, > > about two months ago, I've asked for references to illustrative papers > and information on inter-organizational networking in the field of > social work.
